some wucorp head did a poll for dopest album
of 2006 and i think me and ya bane might have
been the only onez biggin up holocausts banger-
everyone else waz jockin mef and ghost-
now it seemz like mad headz caught the vaporz
that nina simone sample on track 7 iz one of the
dopest samplez ever-
and that one sample i thought waz elvis i found out
iz actually ennio morricone from a song called 'lonesome billy'
holocaust caught mad wreck last year-
lookin forward to hiz next album alot-
if any one of yall headz missed it, peep-
mediocre, these guys got some bangers but it wasnt all that consistent. and its hard to listen to Cloud's constant babble for a whole album. rated it mediocre, prefer his work with Skarecrow over BSBD
i'm gonna go so far az to say this album probably haz more
quotablez than any other wu album since 'wu-tang forever'
OTB - live and uncut
- Rep Power
i think the same....
holocaust and great migration afro samurai and muggs vs gza the best wu discs since forever....
hiphop changed into pop and is controlled by the money....
actually- i have to say 'since wu-tang forever and heavy mental'
'you must be crazy to mess with the tarantula
you try to get me, nope, i turn into smoke and go under the door like dracula'
holocaust iz top 10.

Let's get something straight before we start - Holocaust is my favourite rapper by far.
This is "The Best One-Man Show You Will Ever Hear" only Holocaust could bring such a vast amount of lyrics on a single LP.
Blue Sky Black Death play their part as well, EVERY single beat is unbelivable capturing the mind of Holocaust superbly.As I said on the opening line no one features on the album, when he is in this Robot Tank Mode I don't think anyone would want or dare to join him on a track.
(and actually test him)
Very underated track that starts off in the middle of the chourus.Listen in your headphones can you hear the morse code signal when he is doing the hook right at the begining and slowly through the track it gets lower, maybe something to do with th title?
From when the first thing he says on this album is:
"The kingdom of fame, Cherokee war dance of flame
I plunder take you under to a world untamed"
Twilight Zone -
When you hear this you think or I did "Yes Yes,He's Back The Old Holocaust" well not quite but much more aggressive than the first track.
I still can't make out what he says just before he does the first verse I think he says "I'm promiscuous ???????" you will find this from time to time when in this Robot Tank Mode causing you to listen to it more and more.
He seriously destroys this beat which is madness the chelo that comes in kills it in the chorus.
We All Are Well Known -
Starting from where he left off on the last track the beat is similar yet softer almost has a
"Kill Bill" feel to it he raps incedible bringing dart after dart fact after fact.
"Spray you for the tailors failure"
What Can The Matter Be -
I belive that this track is unbelivable, it's like Holocaust/Robot Tank is tested or really liked this beat because he goes back to the slower style from the first track and bless' it smoke a joint and zone out to this you will be transported!
Also I belive that there is a message in the track - In the chorus he say's
"I came from the Wu-Tang Academy...Ain't no man mad at me"
To me this is unreal because I and many others belive that he is
"The Greatest MC Alive" but he is paying homage to "The Wu-Tang Academy"
aknowledging that that's where he came from and that's wher he should be.
The second part of the message is right near the end the sample -
The second man say's "What does he pay you for murdering me?"
The first man replies "$500" I think that that is how much Holocaust charges for a verse...not nearly as much as certain other shit MC's or rappers charge!
God Be Wih You -
This is poetry in motion Robot Tank at his best he becomes one with the beat which is sheer genius, in fact this song is beautiful my joint favourite.
This one is simply CRAZY the beat is like a Wu-Tang Killarmy track or somrthing, got that shaolin electric feel to it with sword-slahes and old harps.This reminds me of Holocaust trying to burst out of the Robot Tank at the end the screams "HOLOCAUST"
No Image -
But the Robot Tank is even stronger on this track.
Oh dear as soon as this comes on you think "here we go" the beat reminds me of walking a lonely street at night, looking behind you.With none other than Nina Simone sampled for the chorus and Holocaust as Robot Tank rapping about a vampire story, pure sickness.
The Ocean -
Ill sample from a film I would have thought (anyone know)
I don't know how he does it but this song is even better than the last in my opinion.Much more like the old Holocaust over a Grade-A beat with some crazy voices on it listen to the lyrics and imagine him on 8-Mile or a battle - they would call it off by the first verse.Probabally my second favourite.
If you have heard "I Catch Fire" Holocaust as Alcatraz you will see the comparison except this one is much much slow and he is Holocaust as Robot Tank.Again the beat is off the hook not worthy of other rappers freestyling over it.
The Smoking Room -
Listen to the stories.
Lady Of The Birds -
More of an interlude than a song very stange beat listen at the end.
My joint favourite on the album tied with "God Be With You" you seriously have to sit down and listen to this one the veses are ill but Robot Tank just sounds like he is taking the piss, just showing off almost with his slured speach.Straight BANGA and yet again the beat is pure quality.
Killer Moth -
If I was a boxer or gonna fight someone I would listen to this track but I would have to bring someone with me because I would get carried away, the beat is evil.
You can really see the difference between Holocaust & Robot Tank on this one.
Wing To Wingfeather -
This is a masterpiece, yet again the beat is mucky continuously changing and thumping and again I can't see another MC over this beat because of what he does to it, espicially the second verse - "I have a crucifed mind"
Save the best till last?
This is erie this tune, strange - the chorus alone would blast most rappers out of the water.I think he thought to himself "Come on Holo show them"
Like a few tracks on this album it is different to most rap tunes letting the beat speak for itself...doing what sounds like two seperate chorus' the last vesre of the CD is Savage - with elements from all his alter egos -
This is a masterpiece I hope that
"But The End There Of...Are The Ways Of Death" is just as good or if it can surpass it.

OK.............I would rate this just below Heavy Mental as being the best Wu-Fam release...........yep even better than Kilarmy...........and that pains me to say cause I love those guys.
From start to finish this is a no-skip album.
Every track - from beats to lyrics..............
One word would sum up this album.........CLASSIC!!!
The Holocaust Album Is Underatted
The Holocaust Album Wit Production From Black Sky Blue Death Was A Dopely Underratted Album, I'm Just Saying
